New 4-H agent, Kristi Bourgeois, welcomed to Jackson Parish

On September 8th, Mrs. Kristi Bourgeois was introduced as the new agent of the Jackson Parish 4-H program. It didn’t take her long to get to work. On September 12 a Junior Leaders Meeting for 7th-12th graders was held at the Charles Garrett Community Center where activities for the next several months, service projects and fund raisers were discussed.

On Friday, Bourgeois and the local 4-Her’s took part in the Roman Empire STEM Camp at Jimmie Davis State Park, made possible through the support of Jonesboro State Bank and the Pledge 10 Grant Program. Participants from Jackson, Winn, and Bienville parishes came together to use their STEM skills to build boats, windmills, aqueducts, and so much more.
